I booked this hotel for a night mid-week as I was working in Leicester, and don't really like the concrete and glass chain hotels. Then I read the previous reviews (which were not terribly positive about the place) !
Firstly, it is a lovely building, there is plenty of car parking and it is fairly near the centre.
On arriving I found the staff welcoming and helpful. I explained that I really could do with good wifi and they tried to find me a room with a better signal than the first that they gave me (they explained that it is better at the front of the building). The standard rooms themselves are small but perfectly adequate. They were clean and had a reasonably modern shower room.
I ate in the restaurant (only one other guest doing so - but it was a wet october night midweek), and had a very nice steak, for a reasonable price.
The bar is comfortable, the breakfast was fine.
All in all a perfectly acceptable place to stay, and far more homely than the chain hotels. I can't comment on the Sunday lunches, or how they would cope with a busier event ! But I will probably stay there again next time I go to Leicester (and am paying for my room myself).
